Midas Golden Touch Christmas Edition Base Game

Midas Golden Touch Christmas Edition Base Game and Features

Midas Golden Touch Christmas Edition is a 5-reel Video Slot with 15 fixed pay lines. Winning combinations are formed when 3 or more of the same symbols land from left to right, starting from the leftmost reel.

The minimum bet available here is £.€0.10 per spin and the maximum bet available is £.€100 per spin, with plenty of other options in between the two. This game has a theoretical RTP of 96.17% and a max win cap of 10,100x.

In terms of symbols, the highest-paying regular symbol here is Midas, followed by the Crown, Chalice, and Chest. Low-paying symbols are standard Ace, King, Queen, Jack, Ten, and Nine.


Wild symbols in the form of Golden Hands substitute for all other symbols except Scatters. When so many Wilds land, they deliver a Multiplier of x2, x4, x8, x16, or x32 for 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 Wilds that are included in a pay line.

Midas Golden Touch Christmas Edition Free Spins

Landing 3, 4, or 5 Scatters in the base game triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 10, 15, and 20 Free Spins respectively.

During Free Spins, any win that forms will automatically trigger a Sticky Respin feature that locks all winning symbols in their positions. If a new winning combination or additional winning symbols land, the Sticky Respin feature continues. This will end when no more winning symbols land in view.

During each Free Spin, a single Wild symbol is randomly placed on the reels, boosting your chances of triggering the Sticky Respin feature. Collecting 3 or more Scatters during this time will award an additional +10 Free Spins.

Midas Golden Touch Christmas Edition: Our Verdict

To say that we’re long overdue for a sequel of Midas Golden Touch is an understatement, but is a Christmas version really what we had in mind?

We knew the time would eventually come when Thunderkick would grace us with another Midas Golden Touch, but it’s not quite the sequel we had imagined. Besides the evident changes to theme and graphics, Thunderkick has kept gameplay exactly how we remember it.

One would argue that this isn’t exactly a bad thing, given how hugely popular Midas Golden Touch is with players, yet you can’t help but feel a little disappointed.

Many providers have followed up on one of their popular titles and made it ten times better than the original. Take Push Gaming and Razor Returns for example…now that is a sequel that exceeded our expectations in more ways than one!

We’d like to think that Thunderkick has a few ideas up their sleeve for a more promising sequel and that Midas Golden Touch Christmas Edition is just a stepping stone until then.

Midas Golden Touch Christmas Edition is available at online casinos in the UK when it releases on 22/11/2023
